Maple Syrup in NH
The New Hampshire Maple Producers Association celebrates 75 years of dedication to the promotion of New Hampshire’s sugarhouses as well as the maple sugar produced. Hosted by the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association, the annual Maple Sugaring Month runs March 9 through March 31 spanning over four weekends. During this time, sugar makers open their doors to the public to demonstrate centuries of producing maple syrup. At this event, people are able to meet the maple producers of New Hampshire, discover how the whole operation works, enjoy free samples of fresh syrup, maple candies, confections, coffee, and doughnuts. Some maple sugarhouse locations will offer pancake breakfasts, petting farms, and even horse-drawn rides. The 24th annual NH maple weekend will be held March 23-24 in 2019.
